Category:Private Sector Affiliates
Private Sector Affiliates represent a new Galactic economic trend. Galactic Inflation has resulted in a greater amount of capital available to organisations, which they have used to increase the salaries of their workers. These workers now had the opportunity to start their company. Governments have increasingly offered support to their citizens who want to start companies.
In recent years, this has resulted in a unique new type of organisation. A company that would gain government contracts not because it was owned by a government, but because its owner was a citizen of a government. The New Republic was among the first to codify this into their law and give name to the concept.
A PSA may receive benefits similar, or equal to, a Nationalized (Government Owned) Company. These include but are not limited to:
- Temporary staff
- Raw Materials
The PSA does not have to transfer any ownership over to the government, but must not do business with that Government's enemies. Many new companies have been created with this status, or earning it later after an agreement.
